Did a little grocery shopping today

June 8th, 2014 at 05:30 am

I went after work and picked up a 2 lb bag of carrots, 4 baby red potatoes, a large green bell pepper, a pint of half and half, a small can of sliced black olives, and a bottle of fat free Italian dressing for DH. The total was $7.39.

DD made cupcakes last night, and the kitchen was quite a mess when I got up, so we just had cereal and milk for breakfast. I cleaned up the kitchen after. I took a chicken and cheese sandwich and an apple to work, but we were very busy today, so I only had time to eat the sandwich. I left the apple there for tomorrow.

For dinner tonight I made shell pasta with a cheese sauce made from cubes of gouda and truffle white cheddar, and mixed in a can of tuna and a can of French cut green beans. DH said it was like fancy homemade Tuna Helper. The cheese sauce was very rich and creamy. I am not a big fan of truffle oil, so I was glad that flavor wasn't too predominant. We also had salad with butter lettuce and radishes.

We also had some cupcakes for dessert last night and tonight, of course.

I think all my carrots have finally sprouted. Once I thin them out I might get a dozen or so. The window box isn't all that big.

    Your casserole sounds very good. DH has planted carrots in two different pots this year. We actually found some seeds that were bigger so he won't have to do as much thinning. They were a few cents more and he thought he would try them.

    I'll have to thin mine a lot it looks like. This is the first time I have ever done any gardening. Now I know not to plant quite so many!
